Summary

Why you always got to dig things up?

A cabin deep in the woods.
A lost boy buried in the snow.
A lone woman.
And her wolf.

You think you could keep him?
You know where that ends up.
Don’t you.
You no good with kids.

The Woods by Robert Alan Evans premiered at Royal Court Theatre, London, in September 2018.

Critic Reviews

There are woods, a big bad wolf and a lost child . . . but it is a very modern fairytale. Woods and wolves here represent not just dark imagination, but a bleak, all-consuming mental illness. The obtuseness of Evans’s nightmare-logic will no doubt frustrate some . . . But by god, it goes to work on you. It’s also – crucially – a tender thing.
